If you have looked at lots of websites, you have probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error could take place if the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages can sometimes be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and that can have any content which you'd like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. This sort of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
You shall be able to set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all website hosting solutions that we offer, so after you log in to the Hepsia CP and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you could choose the sort of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the last mentioned alternative, you have to specify the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you should upload the files in your website hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The precise syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
